I ordered the "yellow" rug thinking that it was the one I wanted - turned out that I actually should have ordered the "gold". After getting that squared away (O was very helpful and responsive in letting me exchange) I received the rug and LOVE IT! It's beautiful. I noticed no smell and honestly - I can't really see the shedding everyone is talking about. I was really expecting some sort of disaster. Not the case. Nice, thick, quality rug. If it does shed a lot - small price to pay I guess. Very happy
For the price, it's an okay rug. The trellis pattern stands a little higher than the main color, making the rug hard to vacuum in my opinion. The vacuum comes away with lots of the trellis fibers, but then I can still see dirt in the diamonds. It's not as soft as I would like, the fibers are kind of coarse. And it sucks up anything that's spilled - if my daughter spits up on it, even with wiping it up and treating it, the stain is still visible. We bought it for our daughter's nursery and it's not quite been six months and the rug doesn't look great. We vacuum at least three times a week and it's still dirty. But the price is hard to beat.
Using this rug in a beach house and goes very well with the nautical theme. Good quality and feels nice to the touch, only thing that is a negative is vacuuming it is tough due to the raised, textured part of the rug. Love the look, though!
I ordered the rug in Blue about two weeks ago and it is lovely. I place it in the bedroom and it completes the room perfectly. The color is true to picture and it doesn't shed...I haven't even vacuumed it yet. Great addition to the bedroom for a great price. Thanks O!
I really love this rug. It is exactly the chocolate brown that I expected from the pictures. There is one thing I don't like and that is the fact that the white design is raised higher than the brown so it is hard to vacuum. Other than that it is great. It was shipped by being rolled around a large cardboard cylinder so it laid flat immediately. It also feel good under bare feet.
I like the look/style of the rug, it's thick. But sheds like crazy. You can't drop your clothes on it because it will be covered in lint. It's not very soft on feet either. It was best used in a sitting room for decoration where it doesn't get a lot of traffic. Not functional for a high traffic bedroom.
We ordered the Navy and cream color - because it's a wool rug it sheds quite a bit, and when the light color sheds onto the darker color, it shows. Needed to vacuum multiple times a week, and because of the texture you need a strong vacuum or you are going over the same area multiple times just to try and pick up the shedding. We also have a dog and I just felt it wasn't a good rug for pets either - I feel it absorbed too many smells.
